I am not a great fan of Reader's Digest (a personal thing), but I do feel they have a very good product with this book. I have had it for a number of years and there have been very few times that, when I had a question concerning house plants, this work could not provide the answer. Like anything else, this work in not by any means all inclusive, but it is quite a valuable resource when used with some of the other excellent books addressing this subject on the market. Information here is concise. The illustrations are quite good and the book is easy to use. This is certainly one you will want to add to your gardening library.

The best resource book I've found. Concise, excellent pictures, easy to use. Many of my fellow house plant owners wish they had this book on their shelves. Hope a reprint is coming soon.
The bast book for house plant hobbyists I have ever seen.

I have used this book for at least fifteen years as a guide to my greenhouse management and have found it indespensible. My son has just built a small greenhouse. I'd like to give him a copy, so I hope the publisher will reprint it. It is invaluable.
Great plant reference book

This is a wonderful plant reference book for the beginner or for the expert. It covers everything you would want to know about any specific houseplant, a picture of the plant, its common name as well as its "plant" name, pest problems, etc. It is terrific!!! I wish it was still available as I need another copy for a gift.
